Flies: Yellow Fever

“Color is a big consideration when choosing or making flies, and yellow is a time-honored fish catcher. The most obvious example is the Mickey Finn streamer, with a silver tinsel body and a bucktail wing in yellow-red-yellow. The Humpy is a classic attractor-style dry fly that’s most often tied in yellow. And I’ve had great success on autumn browns with a yellow Woolly Bugger.” In the Schenectady, New York Daily Gazette, Morgan Lyle points out that yellow is popular not just among newsstand browsers but big trout as well.
